It’s been a relatively drab fall in Chicago and the weather was chill and overcast, but it was still worth taking the time to walk through the Chicago Botanic Garden. Rather more photos of water than foliage this year.
Most folks don’t realize that the Garden is accessible via public transit: PACE’s Route 213, Greenbay Road, that can be picked up a its southern terminus, the Davis Street CTA station in Evanston. Only every other run directly serves the Garden, but the alternate run will drop you off at Lake-Cook Road & Greenbay Road. This is a short walk to the Garden pedestrian gate. Added benefit: no admission charge for pedestrians.
The Garden is also served by bike paths.
